This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.

Here is a Washer and Dryer Mesh that i made. I'm still in the building process, they don't function yet, but i'm planning on getting somebody to help me with that. Put the 2 Package files in your Downloads directory, and you'll find the objects in the appliances section when you click on the all button. Right now you won't be able to recolor it, but i'll change that here soon too. I hope everybody likes it.

I used the MMM Mini Fridge to get the dimensions right and i cloned the Country Comfort Corner Table to get it in the game. Thanks to Jwoods for helping me with the package files and helping me get them into the game.

I did the UV mapping so that you can make your own recolors if you want. There are 2 PNG files included in the rar file that are the templates for recoloring both objects, and i have provided a screen shot to show which piece is which. Message me if you have any questions or problems.

Oops, i had the wrong package files in the rar should be the white ones now. Sorry about that. If you just want a certain color.....just erase the entire texture map and paint the whole surface one color.....then import that PNG file with SimPE **My objects are not to be put on any pay sites if you do recolor them keep them on this site please.**

well joeys first few roughdrafts of the washer/dryers looked nothing like the ones you see right now...i had to show him pictures of "normal" washer/dryers and he was able to make them look more realistic with the feedback I (and other chatters) gave him They look great

Just what I needed....

Thank you for your side by side washer/dryer set!
It is so nice to finally have a set in white.

Currently I have been using a stacked washer dryer that works as a dresser.
This allows plan and change clothes options from the washer/dryer,
which are really useful since the Maxis dressers are generally too large.

Or if your washer/dryer set was to work as a "Surface" (any of the tables or counters)
then one could put Merola's Pile-of-Clothes dresser on top and use it that way...

Just some ideas.
Thanks again!

Amazing work! I'd like a little more texture with the object, but it's perfect for where I'm putting it in my stories. <3
